  1. Hi everyone. I'm about 7 months out. 70# gone so far (in the midst of a pretty long stall, however...) and hubby and I would like to try for a baby. I know I'm a tad early, but doctor believes I will be ok. Anyways, my question is: how many months of trying (or not trying) did it take you to get pregnant? Thanks
  2. I was sleeved in 3/14. Hated life the first month!!! But did some Pilates today SW 287 CW 232 Started at pant size 22. Tops xl-2x Current pant size 18, tops 14/16 I just started working out, so I hope to get into onederland by Christmas. I don't measure my food...probably should. Guesstimate I can do about 6-8oz of food per meal. Except carbs. They settle heavy. And keep me away from chips!!!

    3 Months, 1 week out. Pics!

    Thanks, guys! My skin is doing well. I'm only 30, so I have that on my side. I can see a bit of loose jiggle on my inner thighs and tummy, but I'm not concerned. I should have started working out a while ago to combat that, but I'm an idiot lol And I'm 5'9"
  4. I believe I wrote a similar thread when I was on puréed. I was told, and they were right, that the fullness doesn't really show as much as it will when you're on adaptive soft/solids. Don't stress. Measure just to keep the calories in check. And to avoid accidental sickness if you don't know your full signs just yet. I'm 3 months out and I know when I'm full now. It took a couple of months to learn. (you really do have to learn!) I have a belly pain that my hubby has named Donk. If Donk gets upset, I usually ate too fast, or one bite too many. I like to keep Donk happy. He's mean, lol. I also get the hiccups if I push myself. Or the physical feelings of an anxiety attack. If I stop when I should, I feel satisfied. Not full. Yay! You will get there.
  5. HW 290 SW 287 CW 234 GW 175 I had my surgery on 3/14/13 and have since lost 53 pounds. I can move. I can cross my legs. I mowed the freakin lawn the other day. I'm living again. I even bought a dress for the summer. I'm not a slave to food. I don't go to bed at night hating myself for being too weak to not get fatter. I was digging my grave with a knife and a fork, and now I feel awesome. I had my doubts the first month. I regretted the surgery. And I missed my carbs. I still get some cravings, but it's not like that I HAVE TO HAVE IT kind of thing. My food addiction is controlled, and that is the best part of all of this. Now I just need to start working out!!!

    I dont understand...

    I don't understand how I went from being able to eat everything I was allowed to eat easily, to not being able to tolerate hardly anything at all. I'm 6 weeks out. I was doing GREAT. Down 35. I get an EGD on may 2. Anyone experience this? What happened??

    Biggest regrets about getting the sleeve?

    I regret that I didn't take the 6 month pre op diet very seriously. I wish I would have taken that time to practice eating slowly and thoroughly, along with getting in lots of fluids, familiarizing myself with high protein foods, and detoxing from certain things like sugar and carbs. I think that would have made the first month a lot easier, both emotionally and physically.

    I love my breville. And a good carrot apple kale juice. Yum.
  9. I'm 5'9 and started almost a month ago at 287. Currently 262 and so far my body is shrinking nicely. I don't anticipate a whole lot of lose skin.

    am I being naive? ?

    I told everyone I loved and trusted to support me. The reason I didn't tell everyone else is because I am well aware that some people view WLS as the "easy way out". We all know that it is not. But as the other poster said....it's a very personal choice made because of very personal issues. And I don't have it in me to possibly have to justify my decision to people or debate with them the truths about its difficulty. I'd rather not add that potential stress into an already trying time.
